, too, andrea, over the weekend while colin powell was out talking about a defense of hagel for a cabinet post, senator corker was appearing elsewhere and giving a different type of interpretation. take a listen. >> i think another thing, george is going to come up is just his overall temperament. and is he suited to run a department or a big agency or a big entity like the pentagon. >> andrea, has senator corker's office or those around him explained what he was getting at there by the temperament phrasing? >> well, in fact, this has sort of lit up the e-mailing and texting around town here because the pro-hagel group, the people supporting him, former staff members, are asking, you know, what was he talking about because he did not get along well with some of his republican colleagues, he's known to have sort of sharp elbows but he's hardly the only senator who is known to be a little prickly at times. so people really don't understand is this a new -- was senator corker previewing a new line of attack against the hagel nomination where they're going to try to get to his t
qaeda, as a spent force. but, just this week, when this terrorist action happened, defense secretary panetta talked about al qaeda, in a very different way. let's watch: >> president barack obama: we've decimated al qaeda's current leadership and brought usama bin laden to justice he deserved. [cheers and applause]. >> al qaeda is still there. they are still a threat. they are a threat in yemen and a threat in somalia. they are a threat as we speak in mali. >> chris: does the president now recognize that al qaeda is not decimated, but is in fact resurging in the countries that leon panetta talked about and what is he prepared to do to take them out in algeria and libya and across the region. >> the president recognizes that. each and every day he is monitoring activity an attempting to disrupt them. >> chris: why in the campaign did he say they were decimated. >> there is no question the core al qaeda leadership in the region has been decimated and you are seeing across the globe groups mushrooming up and what we have done in yemen and in northern africa -- but, again we'll take the
. >> congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department, at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up
've already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, social security and defense mean that we spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of our economy than it has -- than has been true for a generation. and that's not a recipe for growth. so we've got to do more both to stabilize our finances over the medium and long term, but also spur more growth in the short term. i've said i'm open to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i've also said that we need more revenue through tax reform by closing loopholes in our tax code for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it's fair, for example, to ask a senior to
came back from that and put banned performance enhancing drugs in his body. his great defense was, after what i've been through, do you think i would put that stuff in my body and, of course, everybody said, everybody bought that because it was so plausible. so for lance to have actually doped after cancer was a pretty tough thing to do and i think it indicated a win at all costs attitude that was commendable and it was a seriously wrong thing to do. >> you were one of the very first people to question lance armstrong. it goes all the way back to 1999. what was it that made you suspicious in the first place? >> my first point of kind of suspicion was watching lance's treatment of a young french rider and there will be people out there, if they were all doping, how wrong -- how can you blame lance and single him out? they all weren't doping and one of the guys who did not dope in 1999 was a young french rider, and he offered the pin that you couldn't win this tour de france in '99 without doping and much of the colleagues resented him saying that. the guy who most resented him sayi
big defense cuts. lindsey graham's even saying, it's better than nothing. what do you say? do you think sequestration has to be avoided at all cost, or could it go into effect, forcing some sort of spending cuts and fiscal discipline? >> well, i think we can and we should continue to both reduce expenditures and add revenues in a balanced approach to debt reduction that should take several years. it took several years from 2000, where we had a surplus under president clinton to get to a deficit under president bush. so it will take some time. but i think sequestration is a blunt instrument. it doesn't allow the cabinet secretaries, not just the secretary of defense, but the secretary of every other agency, to make judicious judgments about which programs are higher priority. and we in the congress should be able to make those judgments ourselves, working with the administration. so i don't think it's the right instrument. i think the goal is appropriate, which is to reduce the deficit, do it in a balanced way, and recognize that there are some things that you can do up-front, quic
not be so confused. "the constitutional right about guns is for self-defense and hunting. founders did not mean modern weapons of war." lining up the crazy is not a difficult task for the right wing these days. but this rhetoric and hysteria i think is very dangerous. there is no basis to call the president of the united states a tyrant or a dictator, and no president ever deserves to be compared to stalin or hitler. but of course it continues. it happened earlier this week. someone needs to be an adult in the room to tell them to cool it. you know? this is america. but abusing the first amendment really is not good. there is a responsibility when you're in front of a camera and you have a microphone. and if this is the way they want to use it, what do you think is going to happen? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, will republican leadership denounce this type of rhetoric? text a for yes. text b for no to 622639. you can go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. i'm joined tonight by caryn finney, msnbc

was going to win the heisman, man. >> he won every defensive award, best player on defense, second in the heisman, unheard of for a defensive player. and part of his story throughout the season was that in september of last year at the beginning of the season, his grandmother died, and then his girlfriend died within hours of each other. >> heartbreaking story. >> the reports range from an hour to a couple of days. >> you were watching and you cried. >> can i just say, my son, joey, said there's something wrong with this guy. he told me this months ago. >> joey is kind of wise. >> i was watching espn over the holidays. because alabama was on, the story. and they tell this story. and then i got a call the next morning. and it was like no, no, no! and i started tearing up. and i was like -- and then they showed him running onto the field. and i was, like, how did the guy do that the week after he found out that his grandmother and his girlfriend died, and then they went on to say he played for her the day they buried her, man. it was the most remarkable story. and i actually called j

"hunger games" was one of the biggest films of the year and also what i call the six weeks it took me to get into this dress. >> ang li's been nominated for best director for "the life of pi" which is what i'm going to call the six weeks after i take this dress off. >> okay, they were awesome. i thought they were perfect. >> hilarious. >> they were hilarious. good morning, everyone. welcome to "morning joe." it's monday, january 14th. with us on set, we have msnbc cont
of this economy. it's interesting that a lot of people who recognize that when it comes to defense spending, some of the same folks who say we have to cut spending or complain that government jobs that don't do anything. they say, wow, this is an important part of the economy in my district. we shouldn't stop spending on that. let's just makes we're not spending on those other folks. my hope is commonsense prevails. it's always my preference. that's what would be good for the economy. let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficits sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner with me. we can achieve that, and, you know, we can achieve it fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are. we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take, and we've done probably more than half of the deficit reduction we need to stabilize the debt and the deficit. there's probably been more pain and drama in getting there than we needed, and so finishing the job shouldn't be that diffic
likely that an innocent will be killed as opposed to it being used for self-defense and it's just very, very intuitive. people understand that these weapons, assault weapons and high capacity clips, make these kinds of incidents so much more likely to result in massive homicides, and it wouldn't happen with a hammer and it wouldn't happen with a knife. >> but i think that's why we have to call it out for what it is. it's an attempt to deflect us from the real issue. that's all it is. >> it's about denuding what they know would actually in some measure affect this problem and they refuse to do it. >> it's also demonstrably wrong. >> yes. karen finney and julian epstein, as ever, thank you both. >>> next, the new thriller by acclaimed action director john speaker boehner. stay with us. >> so to even entertain the idea of this happening, the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd.

from rush limbaugh. he has taken a very strange twist in his defense of gun enthusiasts. he's now claiming that they are the martin luther kings in this civil rights fight. >> if a lot of african-americans back in the '60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, do you think they would have needed selma? if john lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? >> i have to tell you -- >> karen, listen, this is disgusting. first of all, it's not original -- >> rush is now -- it sounds like he's trying to be a member of the black panthers. this is ridiculous. >> well, there's that irony as well. but it's not original. he's taking it from the comments from the other right wing nut job who was talking about if slaves had guns. first of all, there are plenty of shotgun owners during the civil rights era, but to reduce john lewis' service to this country and the civil rights movement and the black experience and the overall american experience in this country to him getting beat upside the head is disgusting and offensive. this is a man who
is across-the-board cuts across domestic and -- >> half from defense, which is 17% of the budget, so the question is, do republicans hate defense cuts less than they would like to see the spending cuts on the domestic side? my -- after that comes march 27th, which is when the current continuing resolution on -- that funds the government expires, so we're going to have real debates about real splittable differences. >> the other thing, george, that's going to happen, and i think that this is going to begin the process of it, is that every day that goes past the inauguration is a loss of power day for the president. and you have -- you basically now have a party, the democratic party will function with him but it's been a cult of personal. fundamentally a cult of personality around the president. they'll have to figure out where they go from here and what's going to happen. the republicans are a cult of no personality and no people and they're going to have to figure out so each day goes forward i think we're going to have an increasing inability for somebody to stand up and say i repr
of the economy. for example, former defense secretary robert gates has warned the rising -- he has warned of rising military costs for years. >> sharply rising health care costs are consuming an ever-larger share of this department. growing from 19 billion 234 in . >> military health care costs have gone up 300% in the past decade. 2012 was the first year since 1995 military personnel saw an increase in health care premiums. now, there are two things republicans love. the military and reducing the deficit. republican should be thrilled with the public option. how can you make a hundred billion dollar mistake? who's doing the math? will it save or won't it save? let's turn to the author of the bill, january schawowsky of illinois. >> i'm so happy that wendy is doing well. >> thank you. we appreciated your phone calls very much. congresswoman, the math? >> the estimate is it's $104 billion over 10 years. it saves the government money. in terms of the subsidies, in the exchanges, it would be one option that americans could choose the cost would be 5-7% less and it would be an anchor pulling
self-defense hom sighed a year and 309,000 gun deaths a year. tomorrow the vice president will send his boss recommendations for the white house's gun control package. this is part of what could be the most crucial moment in the obama administration. perhaps the most important legislation they'll ever propose. because gun laws do work. studies have shown firearm deaths are significantly lower in states with stricter gun legislation. this map shows the ten states with the strongest gun laws and the ten with the lowest gun death rates. the correlation the seven states in green is strong. banning assault weapons, requiring trigger locks, and mandating safe storage works. the nra would like you to believe no legislation woot help. no one obvious law could have stopped adam lanza but we can make our world safer. public policy is meant to be aspir rational, to try to make the world better. the white house knows it just as it knows the right has gone far extreme on this, so far into second amendment absolutism, if it's not any weapon anywhere they will lead you down the

with the prime minister, the defense minister, opposition leaders, business leaders and, finally, with president morsi, and all of us pressed our concern, our offense at the things he's alleged to have said a number of years ago. and he responded that he is not someone who harbors hatred or ill feeling towards judism or the jewish people, but the burden is on him to further explain and put in context not just his statements, but also his actions. egypt is a vital partner for the united states, we also discussed critical strategic issues, such as security in the sinai respect for the camp david peace accords with israel and the constructive role that we hope egypt can play in the region going forward, but, obviously, his statements and our grave concerns about them were at the outset of the meeting. the responses were satisfactory enough that we then went on to talk about some of the other vital regional strategic issues. >> now, the white house and the state department have both condemned what he said, so from my own experience, they would not have condemned what the president of egypt said if h

that's not a knee-jerk and neoconservative is going to be secretary of defense and that he's going to be showing a lot more restraint because he remains a realist even when he's in that job and he's around the table talking to the president, giving him the options that he has. >> i mean, i think people who like hagel personally should be pleased. people who like the idea that he's someone who can cut defense spending and is willing to do that and has the credibility to do that should be pleased. but there was also an element of this that was sort of a symbolic early squirmish over military action in iran. that hagel could only take the job by basically reversing himself on this stuff. and also on some of the things about israel. his statement to schumer showed explicit support for israeli civilian casualties in gaza, for bombing civilians in gaza if they need to. that's pretty intense. >> all right. chuck todd, thank you very much. we'll be watching you on "the daily rundown" right after "morning joe." and ben smith, thank you as well. >>> coca-cola doubles down on its pr push to g
think the republicans are hoping that they have a manti te'o defense, that somehow it was all a hoax and maybe the election was a hoax and they can go back and redo everything. no. i think the republican -- the white house strategy is make the house republicans try to do something. and i think that -- and my understanding what house republican leadership wants to do is they have to figure out how to pass -- how to pass a raise in the debt limit at all first. to just put something out there to prove that they can get leverage, right? that was something that boehner tried to do with his whole plan "b" during the tax thing. and when he couldn't do that, then suddenly he lost all leverage. so that's the name of the game number one. and then the second part is what david was talking about there, which is they are trying to figure out how to basically move away from the debt limit as a part of this argument, and that's -- it's easier said than done. they know where they should be having this spending argument, and that is with funding the government. whether they can get the rank and file
